I have got a P4 computer with Seagate Barracuda 80 GB SATA harddisk. The problem is that it is very slow. It takes more than 3 minutes to load Windows XP. It is not an old one, I have bought it only 3 months ago. It was slow from day one. Whereas, I have another pc which is a P3 with Seagate Barracuda 80 GB ATA installed. This PC performs alot better than the former. Windows XP loads within a minute. Game loading is also impressive. I am really confused. Plzzzzzzzzz Help. Any advice will be apprciated. Thnx alot! More about : problems seagate barracuda sata g-paw February 3, 2007 8:58:26 PM Is the Seagate SATA 3.0 or 1.5? Is the board connection 3.0 or 1.5? If you haven't done so recently, I'd do a disk clean and defrag. What the machine running faster with the old hdd or is this a new build? Have you tried a different hdd? Can't find your answer ?
